Remove scrollbar in full-screen mode



I am using the Balasmiq mockup tool on Windows 8 to show some mockups. Now when I go in full-screen mode, I am able to see the scollbars for displaying the current scroll location. I don’t want to see the scroll-position. I mean these scrollbars I don’t want to see. It’s not shown in Adobe PDF reader for example when in Full-screen mode. How do I achieve the same in Balasmiq. Thanks a lot. :smile:


Hi @akshay,

You can remove the scrollbar by using the “Zoom out to fit” option when in full screen presentation mode (keyboard shortcut is “z”).

Does that work for your mockups?

Let me know what you think. :wink:


@Virgin Thanks for the reply. But when I go in full-screen mode, I cannot see that blue gear type icon even after pressing z, also there is nothing by right-click.


Ok, let’s see what’s happening here.

Are you using the desktop version of Balsamiq Mockups?

If so, may I ask which version you are running?
I am wondering if you are using version 2.x which did not include that option.

This feature was launched with version 3 and you can download the latest version (3.1.8) here:

Please let us know if you need any further information.


This worked. Thanks a lot.
